Iconic ’64 SG Standard VOS Reissue with Maesttro Vibrola
Immortalized by Santana at Woodstock and smashed onstage by Townsend, the Gibson SG is a rock icon. Gibson’s Nashville-made 1964 SG Standard Reissue VOS with Maesttro Vibrola takes you back to formative years of the legendary solidbody electric guitar, in all its vintage-original-spec glory: two powerful humbuckers, Maesttro Vibrola tailpiece, cellulose Trapezoid inlays, vintage nitro finish, and all. Handcrafted by Gibson’s elite Custom Shop luthiers, the SG Custom’s fast, comfortable ’64 Medium C neck; bound ebony fingerboard, and Plek’d medium jumbo frets provide an effortless playing experience; while its lightweight, sleekly contoured mahogany body delivers great sustain and no pain, even when you gig all night. And the vintage nitro finish looks and feels stupendous while enhancing the tone of this legendary rock machine. Own your piece of music history: the Gibson SG Custom.
CustomBucker pickups deliver pure vintage PAF tone
Gibson Custom paid just as much attention to this guitar’s electronics as they did to its aesthetics. Every part of its internal signal path was designed to deliver dead-on 1964 SG tone. Of course, it’s next to impossible to find genuine ’50s PAFs (even for Gibson). Instead, the 1964 SG Standard Reissue VOS sports a pair of Gibson’s CustomBucker humbuckers. The CustomBucker is the most historically accurate PAF copy ever.
Medium C neck and Plek’d frets for optimized playability
Comfort and playability were two of Gibson’s primary concerns when they were designing the 1964 SG Standard Reissue VOS. You’ll be delighted at how this guitar’s Medium C profile neck comfortably fills your hand in just the right way. For your playing pleasure, the bound Indian rosewood fingerboard is buffed to silky smoothness and the frets are dressed to perfection using a Plek Pro machine for optimized playability. Typically reserved for top-dollar custom guitars, this process levels the frets with pinpoint precision, providing you with the most playable fretboard you’re likely to own.
Nitro finish, for the look and feel of a classic
The Gibson Custom 1964 SG Standard Reissue VOS wears a gorgeous nitrocellulose lacquer finish. Lacquer finishes — standard back in the day — are significantly thinner than today’s polyurethane finishes, allowing the guitar to “breathe.” Nitro finishes not only look amazing; they also enhance the instrument’s tonal qualities. This guitar has the look (and feel) of a lovingly cared-for classic — one that will only improve with age.
